I was at a kitchen store and came across a very interesting knife. I went a head and bought it, as it was only six dollars. It had two points of the end, and my first instinct, was, it’s a knife to fillet fish…
It sort of looked like a fish to me.
I brought it out to the car to show DH, and he asks me what kind of knife is it?
Still not reading the back of the package..I told him it’s is a knife to fillet fish.YES, that must be it!
The next day we are at a friends house, when my friend pulls out a knife, which looks just like the one I bought.
Who says girls don’t like strange looking knives? :o)~

 I’m asked by a friend, if I know what kind of knife it is?
I told her, no. But I just bought one myself.
She asked me if I Googled it yet? To find out what kind of knife it was?
I told her I hadn’t, because what exactly would I be Googling? Strange knife?
Knowing I hadn’t taken my new knife out of it’s package, I came home and took it out of the drawer.
I decided to read the back…. And guess what?
I would have never guessed. I didn’t know they existed. I thought people used cheese cutters to slice cheese? And what the heck is up with these super sharp points at the end of the knife, that make it look like a fish?



50's and 60's theme PARTY!

Today dh’s company announced the theme for this years company party. It will be the 1950’s/60’s theme!! I was hoping for the 70’s or 80’s theme..Aw well!! This will be the third one we have attended. The year before last was 1920’s, and then last year was Country/Western theme.


I did some browsing tonight and came up with a few pictures to inspire me. The party is not till March 23rd, so I have plenty of time.


My first thought was of the movie Grease!! When I hear 50’s…I think of the movie Grease. I also think of the book, The Outsiders.

When I hear 60’s, I think Woodstock and Hippies!! Which sounds very fun to dress up as, as I could just shop in my closet..:o)~


I’m not sure what I want to go with..50’s, or 60’s? I think I could pull off 60’s better then 50’s…

Bettie Page, Marlyn Monroe, Sandra-Dee, June Cleaver, Audrey Hepburn …

Pin-Up Girls,Rockabilly,Mod Retro,Housewife June….All ladies I think of, when I envision the  1950’s..along with poodle skirts, of course.

That said,  I could find a form fitting pencil dress, or a nice Sheath dress,  curl my hair, and get some big glasses and be a prim and proper secretary. My mind also goes to TV shows, such as, I love Lucy, and Sonny & Cher!!!


OR, I can just think Woodstock..and be a Hippie!! Which is probably what I will end up doing, as I want to comfortable…..

Here are some pictures that I came across tonight…Anyone have any thoughts worth sharing?
